Retreat in the heart of South Tyrol

Mölten lies at an altitude of 1142 metres on the Tschögglberg, a low mountain ridge in the southwest of the Sarntal Alps. The resort is surrounded by gently rolling hills, while the panorama of the surrounding mountain ranges looms on the horizon. An idyllic South Tyrolean mountain village that invites you both to hike and to relax, far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

If you are looking for peace and quiet, but are not averse to an active holiday, you will find the right hiking trails in Mölten. Nevertheless, Mölten is not too far from the action. The village is located between Merano in the north and Bolzano in the south and is therefore well connected in terms of transport.

Hiking trails in Mölten and in the Sarntal Alps

The immediate surroundings in the Sarntal Alps are a good address for hikes that require little or no alpine experience. The landscape is much more characterised by dense coniferous forests and flower meadows that invite you to hike between the various farms.

A popular destination for hiking tours is the high plateau of the Salten with its larch forests. On the way, there are always opportunities to rest at one of the mountain lakes or simply enjoy the view. Those who are looking for a sporting challenge will find a few comparatively easy summit paths, more difficult rock routes and secured via ferratas on the northern edge of the Tschögglberg.

A visit to the Möltner Kaser at 1806 metres is also recommended. This is an alpine pasture with an inn, which can be found below the Stoanernen Mandln. The legendary place is known for its stone pyramids erected by shepherds. The atmosphere of this mystical place is difficult to put into words. It should definitely be considered as a hiking destination - if only for the phenomenal view.

A little more curious is the Knottnkino on the Tschögglberg, which is a work of art that basically only consists of several rows of seats, as we know them from old cinemas. The "film" is a magnificent panorama consisting of the Texelgruppe, Pebegal, Weißhorn and sky.

If you don't mind a few more metres of altitude when hiking, you can take one of the hiking tours to the Mölten Joch. Starting from the village centre of Mölten, there is a circular trail that partly follows the European Long Distance Trail 5 (E5) and leads to the highest point of the Tschögglberg. You should allow at least 4 hours for the 11.4-kilometre route with its 615 metres of altitude difference.

Or you can hike from Vilpian in the direction of Schlaneid, a village at 1146 metres above sea level. You will pass one or two farms while enjoying the view over the Adige Valley. You can also use the small cable car to get to Schlaneid and start hiking from there.
